Nissan and kati are so lovely and are always willing to help. Unfortunately our room had a drain problem in the shower when we would go to use the shower or sink the water would flow out of the drain and leave puddles all over our room and drench our clothes. We were a little upset that there was no toaster or oven to cook our pizza and avo on toast, The rooms are small with creaky beds but have a lovely view and the balcony and kitchen are very very nice. Would definitely stay again if the problems are fixed. It's also so close to the train station and the water which is nice :)

Not really a house, more like a mini hotel. The host I saw once briefly, but never spoke to again. There's a reception desk that was never manned. We were given the codes to the door, and key was in the room. I didn't particularly mind that, but it wasn't the 'friendly welcome' touted in the description. A few pros and cons. Pro: great location, very clean with daily room service, quiet location. Cons: The room was nice, but a very small bathroom that did not have a toilet. Instead, there were shared toilets. This was not made very clear in the description. The room was very warm, but then again it was peak summer so I'm not sure it could be helped. Mattress was bouncy and pillows were not super comfy.

Response from Nissan:
Good day Natalia, Thanks for your feedback, first sorry that I did no get to see you and welcome you, it is a very busy time and since we just took over the place last month we are a bit overwhelmed. To your points, we take them to heart and as we get to understand the issues we will address them one by one. We promise to upgrade the beds and make sure some of the rooms get AC to solve some of the heat. In short there is work to be done and your comments are very helpful. We are a guest house that takes pride in preserving the Portuguese heritage and we will try and keep it as such. Thanks and Bon Voyage
